Product Information:
If you're looking for an affordable plate carrier that has everything you need, this is the one. It's not built with the highest quality, but when you get a triple and double two stack M4 pouches, 2 pistol pouches, an admin pouch, a utility pouch, and a radio pouch, how much do you expect to pay? Along with those, it comes with two foam plates to add a little stability to the carrier and gives it a good feel. When it is loaded with 10 fully loaded mid caps, two full loaded pistol mags and a hydration carrier, this thing is a good 15-20 pounds. But it does fit like a no other. I like to go for the PMC look so I just wear a black short sleeve under armour under it, but still fits me tight. I'm a 5'8" 165 pound football player so I'm more lean than big. It still fits fine with more room to adjust. I'm guessing it will fit anyone over 5'6" 130 and up tightly. Anything under that may be a little loose. If anyone is looking for an affordable plate carrier that looks cool and feels good, this is the one. You can't find a better plate carrier for the price.

Pros:
-Comes with a triple and double STANAG pouch (I hide the flaps behind so the mags show. It's tight enough so mags don't come loose)
-2 pistol pouches, utility pouch, admin pouch, radio pouch, foam dummy plates
-Coyote brown looks sick for a PMC loud out
-Fits perfectly, like it was custom made for me
-Adjustable sides, cummerbund, shoulder straps + quick release
-Shoulder pads

Cons:
-Seams and stitching look really sketchy
-The snap buttons on the pouches suck (when taking a mag out, the button sometimes undoes itself and the pouch flaps around)
-Velcro is a tough son of a gun to undo (May be pro for some, but I'm saying this is TOUGH to get off. Maybe it will break in with time)
-Heavy when fully loaded (Partially my fault for putting so much on it, but everything I put on it is necessary for me)
-Coyote brown on this is a tad darker than condor's coyote brown, so in some lighting, it looks weird
-My friend got a Lancer Tactical velcro patch with his and I didn't

Product Information:
Lancer Tactical Strike Plate Carrier Vest (CB/TAN) aka CIRAS vest.
You can read what is included on the Description part of the item. Now lets get to the review of this item.

Background:
I'm with a team and we play fairly often. They play at least once a week. I usually only get to make it out at least once a month, maybe twice if I'm lucky. I'm very very careful with all my stuff, thats just me. I make sure everything fits fine and functions perfectly. The CIRAS itself is pretty nice. The CB color is pretty dark and almost OD green to me. It seems like a mixture of OD green and Tan.

The CIRAS cord does exactly what its meant to do. You can take off this vest in seconds. I wouldnt recommend trying it as its a PIA to put it back. Its not THE BEST CIRAS but its an affordable one. Since it has all the pouches you might need, theres no need to hunt for some down. But it might not have the ones you need.

I have worn this about 3 times to field test it. The durability of the seams are NOT good at all. After the 3rd game, I decided to take off the vest and somehow ended up ripping the right side of the vest. The part that rip is right under the Utility pouch (seen in picture) because you have to lift it up and then wrap the velcro back forward to put on the CIRAS. I'm NOT that strong, the velcro does a very good job of hugging it down and in, which is night but dam its stronger then the seams?

This CIRAS fits me just fine, you can adjust this to fit a varies of sizes. I'm about 5'6" 155lbs and its a snug fit. I also got a Condor Hydro pack which fits nicely in the back. Overall I'm pretty happy with it. Since I got this on sale AND extra 20% off. Does it job but you have to be really careful putting it on and taking it off or at least have your mum or GF put on extra threads where its needed. (both right and left side of the vest where you take off).

I give it 4 out of 5 stars. Would recommend this since its pretty cheap and does its job well.

Pros:
+ Includes Pouches
+ Fits varies of sizes
+ Price vs other Ciras style vest
+ Also includes foam inserts for the front and back of vest. (if you lay it down it will stand up instead of flop down like others w/o the foam inserts)

Cons:
- Seams are NOT great, they come undone/rip with some force.
- Color are slightly off but thats my opinion.
- Fabric is really stiff
- Pistol mags are small (barely fit KWA HK45 mags)

Product Information:
This vest is fantastic. It is extremely sturdy, without being terribly heavy. With the included pouches on but empty, the vest weighs about 4lbs. It includes two foam dummy plates, which is something I haven't seen in most vests of this price. It will carry ten M4 mags out of the box, is fully adjustable and customizable. It says tan, but it is dark enough that it will go with green based camo like woodland or Multicam.

A note on adjusting:
This vest takes some work to adjust. First try it on and see approximately how much it needs to be adjusted. Then turn it over and lift the lowest flap on the back panel. Underneath you'll find the quick release wire running through a small rope which in turn runs through holes in six straps. These straps control the height of the shoulder straps, and the tightness of the interior cummerbund and exterior cummerbund. Slide the rope through holes further up the straps to tighten them.

Pros:
Very sturdy
Tons of included pouches
Includes dummy plates
Makes you feel completely BA

Cons:
Difficult to adjust (though this also makes it difficult to come loose
